  2. 700 TA

    Hi, Got a 2008 700 TA in december, stuck it in the garage - the Mrs has then filled the garage with crap so I can't get in from the garden and the youngest's car has broken down in front so I can't get in the front, hence the possibly silly question. Want to get a paddock stand for it (cheaper...

  10. Witomoto

    Just heard from Peter at Witomoto. He is thinking about shutting shop as orders are few and far between. It would be a shame to lose his expertise and enthusiasm, not to mention the top quality of materials and workmanship. Things are tough all round, but that bit worse in Poland. So if you...

    What's it worth?
    It's a custom seat that came on my TA when I bought it. It was very comfy for me and the Mrs said it was brilliant for pillion. However being height challenged... The seat meant I could only tip toe the bike and made it a bit difficult for two up riding so I bought a low seat. Not sure how much...

    Ok I know its a bit of a long shot but hey if you don't ask ....... My good lady's Shoprider Mobility scooter seems to have developed a fault after she managed to get stuck in a patch of mud (don't ask how). After engaging the free running lever and pushing it out of the mud and re-engaging...
